(Christian Headlines) The number one pick in this year’s NFL Draft is a player who is grounded in his Christian faith and who doesn’t let what others say affect him, his former college coach says.
The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence as the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft Thursday, making him the face of their franchise under new coach Urban Meyer, the former coach at Florida at Ohio State.
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney – who coached Lawrence for three seasons – told the Sports Spectrum podcast that the Jaguars are getting a “special” player. Lawrence led the Tigers to the College Football Playoff three straight seasons, winning the national championship in 2018.
